Hoping someone may have a quick idea on how to strip down a reclining chair, and create a seat that "sucks " you in. Have not seen anything on this subject. Any ideas out there?

I remember seeing something like this years back but don't recall where. It may not even have been haunt related.

I think quick and easy may be too much to hope for. You are probably better off starting from scratch. Even if you could figure out a way to remove the fabric and set it up so someone gets sucked in, you would probably find the frame and reclining mechanism gets in the way. Start with a framework that looks like a recliner and allows you to get sucked in then figure out what to cover it with.

I think it could be a cool effect but think you would run into problems with the fabric being pulled in and exposing the frame. Wear and tear would be a killer, both on the fabric and on the actor. Would you want to be the one that gets pulled in 100 times a night?
